That was obviously the situation at the time but people are entitled to change their mind and this appears to be one of those set of circumstances. However under the Corona Virus Act they currently have to give you 3 months notice.
They cannot give you that in the first 4 months of the term or any renewal of the term and they cannot give you notice to expire before the end of the term or any renewal. If you don’t move out when they have given you the requisite three months notice they would then need to take you to court for an order for possession and if you still don’t move out, take you to court for a warrant for possession where Bayliss would come in physically throw you out.
You might want to think about moving in the short-term and then, if you get notice, start to look in earnest because you then have three months.
I’m sorry, I know it’s not the answer you wanted but they are not bound by what you were told by the agent.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.

It doesn't just give me a pat on the head! It's what gets me paid!!
There is also an experts incentive scheme whereby the more 5 star ratings I get I do actually get a pat on the head!
